Pro-jewish Sentiment in Italy Worries Mussolini’s Ministry of Propaganda

Download PDF for this date

The pro-Jewish sentiment among the Italian people has prompted Mussolini’s Ministry of Propaganda to publish a special booklet in which the people of Italy are told that “the Jews are actually responsible for the present war.”

The booklet, copies of which reached here today, is entitled “Jews Want War.” It contains many anti-Jewish allegations, including the one made in the last few issues of the defunct American publication “Social Justice” that in 1933 the Jews held a secret conference where it was decided to engineer a war against Germany.
